Great Rift Valley Lodge & Golf Resort won the Kenya's & Africa's Best Golf Hotels awards 2017. The dinner was held at the La manga club Spain on 25th November 2017.

World Golf Awards Managing Director, Chris Frost, said: "The fourth installment of the 2017 World Golf Awards has been the most successful to date, welcoming industry leaders to Murcia, Spain, for a weekend of golf, networking opportunities and our fabulous Gala Ceremony.

"It has been an honor to recognize so many world-class organization here this evening and I offer my sincere congratulations to all our winners."

In a unique presentation, the World Golf Awards Academy honored golf industry stalwart, Ian Baker-Finch, with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

One of the most popular and successful golfers and golf commentators, the Australian - who is known for his easy-going manner and his love for the sport - has more than 15 years in sports television and 17 titles under his belt.

Voting for the 2017 Gala Ceremony closed at the end of September, with a record number of ballots cast by leading golf industry tourism professionals.

These were tallied alongside the votes of hundreds of thousands of golf consumers around the world, with the winners revealed earlier this evening at the five-star La Manga Club - an unrivaled sports and leisure paradise in south-east Spain.

Votes are submitted online via the World Golf Awards website.

The winners of each national category will go head-to-head with the winners of the other countries before the unveiling of the World Winners.
